Hi there! My name is Aaron Dowd. I’m a podcast producer, editor, and educator from Fort Worth, Texas.
I help people make great podcasts so they can share their stories and lessons, grow their audience and community, and make a positive change in the world. I’m passionate about creating great audio experiences and supporting other people who want to make them too.
I started helping people make podcasts back in 2013. I worked as a editor, producer, and consultant for dozens of shows and several podcast networks between 2014 and 2017.
I started my own podcast in 2015 to share everything I’d learned about podcasting.
After producing 75 episodes, I took a break to finish three online courses about podcasting: Successful Podcasting, Logic Pro X for Podcasters, and GarageBand for Podcasters.
In late 2017, I joined Simplecast to serve as their Customer Success Lead.
In early 2020, I left Simplecast to join Podcorn (an online marketplace for podcast sponsors).
I’m currently working on a 2.0 version of my Successful Podcasting course. My plan is to publish this updated version as an ebook, video course, and hopefully a real-time interactive class that runs every few months as well. I will be writing and publishing the contents of the book in real time on my blog, so check out the Home page if you’d like to see how progress is coming along.
If you’d like help starting a podcast, or if you’d like some one-on-one help with improving the show you already have, I offer podcast coaching and consulting as a service.
My rate is $80/hour for consulting and coaching sessions, please email me at aaron at thepodcastdude.com if you have any questions or if you’re ready to schedule a call.
